I'm super excited to share our bedroom reveal with you today! It's not a huge space, but we have big windows, tall ceilings, and just enough space for our bed, two nightstands, a dresser, a bench and lots of bed pillows ;) My husband and I wrote our own vows to each other for our wedding ceremony (which you'll get to hear us say to each other next week when I share our wedding video!)
One thing I've always been frustrated about at weddings is that sometimes you can't hear the couple saying their vows, or maybe you just forget them and wished you could hear them again. For this reason + because we wanted our vows to hang as art in our bedroom, we had my talented calligrapher friend Jenny of Graceline Art calligraph our vows. We displayed them like this at our reception on our memory and guest book table:
As soon as we got back from our honeymoon, I snagged the most BEAUTIFUL frames from Framebridge. We chose the Newport Frame, which has a really beautiful champagne finish and light patina to it. If you have a lot of silver and gold accents in your space, this warm champagne finish would be a perfect compliment! When our frames arrived I was blown away. These are extremely professionally framed-- I should have taken a picture of the back of the frame to show you.
The process of getting your artwork or photos framed is so easy, too. Here's how it works: You choose your frame and order it on the site, then Framebridge sends you a flat mailer to send in your photo (or you can upload a digital file if you have one!), and finally they ship you back your art all beautifully framed. It was quick and easy and totally customizable. I told them in my order the size matting I wanted and then viola! it came just as I specified.
Take a look at our bedroom and new frames!

Aren't they lovely? You're probably curious about what we said in our vows (I know I would be!) so here are the "vow statements" for inquiring minds...the sweetest and most covenantal words I've ever exchanged. The first part of our vows were too long to include in the artwork, so we left those out. But you'll get to hear them next week when I share the video!
Michaela, in the presence of God, our friends, and our families, I promise to put your needs above my own; to love you as Christ loved the church. Through thick and thin, through days of joy and days of sorrow, through all of life’s ups and downs and twists and turns. I promise to lead our family the way God would have me lead; I promise to stand up for you, to respect you, to show patience and faithfulness to you with my whole heart, mind, and soul for all the days of my life.
McCann, I promise to choose you every day. I promise to believe the best about you. I vow to encourage you and honor you. I promise to strive to give you an abundance of grace, speak kindly to you and about you. I vow to apologize when I fall short. I promise to love you selflessly as Christ loves his children, to serve with you, stand beside you, walk with you through suffering and celebrate and laugh with you in the joys of life. I can't wait for life's adventures by your side, because as your wife, by your side is always where I want to be.
